German economics and climate minister Robert Habeck is drafting legislation to ensure that 2% of the country’s territory will be made available for wind farms, as determined by the coalition treaty of Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s social democrat-green-liberal government.

The target is part of Berlin’s ambition to boost Germany’s renewable power share to 80% by 2030, up from about 42% last year.

Habeck still this month plans to bring in a proposal for a wind area requirement law that could overrule state laws that impede a rapid expansion of wind energy, such as onshore wind distance rules, the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper said citing ministry sources.
